Insomnia, or the Speculation of the Stars

Insomnia, or the Speculation of the Stars short poem

O sleepless night! I am in love with you!

O youthful night, the belle of the ball!

Thine veritable messengers, the stars, the comets

And the meteors

Arrived on time.

How majestic they are, these celestial bodies!

How magnificent is their canticle in the night!

They are the witnesses of golden ages and falls

Of the ancient empires.

Bloody tyrants, impostors and prophets they know by sight.

Tell me, o Night, wherefore we live and die?

Or do we just lie down and leave time?

Insomnia short poem

I walk down the bridge Whispering to my restless mind About your last night’s talk And those unfeeling hands of innocence The night eglantine smiles In its usual way At my timid inexpressive desire And the love filled eyes of

Hearts Are Stars

Hearts Are Stars ballad

Hearts are stars lost in a tango- between the moon and the sun. Stuck between parallel worlds- they only shine to a smiling moon only to die for a burning sun. Love is an eclipse of a sparkling moon standing
